Illuminating Trolley-Jack

Well, where else do you want the light?
  [vote for,

Just dawned on me now, so the idea is not well fleshed-out.

The jack would have batteries (perhaps even charged by your pumping action, or better by the energy given up by the vehicle being lowered again) and lamps to illuminate the underside of the vehicle you have lifted. Perhaps the lamps can be swivelled/pointed etc.

Saves you having extra clutter under there, lights and torches and so fourth. Can't believe I didn't think of it before.

Some petrol stations do a line of salt and pepper grinders that are unnecessarily electric. These bizzarely contain a torch, presumably to allow you to see what you are seasoning when cooking and eating in blackout conditions. If people think a condiment torch is useful, then surely a work-illuminating jack would be a winner?

       I have seen an electric parmesan grinder with integrated spot light. I think they're meant to be used on romantically dimly-lit occasions. The dim lighting causes the pupils to dilate, also a symptom of arousal, so suddenly flicking on the lights to better see where you are strewing your cheese-parings would instantly kill the carefully-contrived, titillating atmos. Not so if you have a pepper/parmesan grinder with headlamp. You could even hide the light behind your hand/a hat/a ping-pong bat whilst grinding to make double-sure your date stays aroused.   

       Illuminated kitchen appliances should actually rightly be sold in the sex aids department of your local superstore.   

       Not sure 'bout the correct department for the car jack though. (+)

       same old story
